Great work place
Machine Operator (Former Employee), Hickory, KYSeptember 4, 2014
Checking parts as they come out of machines, making offsets to machines when needed for adding or taking away material. Changing tools out when needed. Filling orders. Management was really good and i had a chance to move up as "line lead" but was laid-off before i could try and take it. At Remington i learned a lot of different things: How to repair guns, machine barrels, write up scrap, working as a team to get a job done.

Lousy Management, Poor Morale
Engineer (Current Employee), KYAugust 10, 2014
Pros: subject matter; co-workers
Cons: management; broken promises
- No transparency
- "Good ol' boys club" management style with no accountability to upper management
- Management makes lot's of promises, but never comes through
- Lackluster pay
- Engineers are treated like a commodity
- True success is rewarded with a pat on the back
- Morale is very low, with no incentive to go above and beyond
- Not much career advancement. Opportunities are lateral moves to various engineering functions
- High employee turnover rate
- Most of the engineers are very competent, friendly, and pleasant to work with.

Poor company to give your time to
Engineer (Current Employee), KentuckyJune 29, 2014
Pros: interesting industry
Cons: poor work environment, poor management, low recognition, no incentives, poor employee moral
I know what you're thinking... It's Remington, it's got to be great! Well, that is very far from the truth!

Remington may have one of the lowest moral work forces that I have come across. I would guess that 80-90% of the current employees are all desperately searching for jobs. Most employees are dissatisfied with their compensation, hours worked, lack of appreciation or recognition, management, the product itself or, very possibly, all the above.

As a Remington Employee, you are expected to be available at any time to work and you're expected to work large amounts of overtime. And your lost personal time, well, it is just that. Remington has no employee incentive program in place. So, you work your tail off only to help Remington make more millions of dollars. Remington continues to give low annual merit increases that are well below cost of living increase.

Management is very deceiving in making you think that they care and that they are listening to your concerns... but, you learn quickly that is not the case.

The product is definitely cool and interesting but that wears off pretty quick. Pretty soon you get tired of producing mediocre products that are rushed to make a quick buck. The company likes to think they are doing you a favor by working for Remington and you should feel privileged to work for them. That is not the case.

Dismal and unhappy work environment.
Construction Inspector (Former Employee), Cinnaminson, NJMarch 28, 2014
Currently employed with company and looking to get out as are most of the employees. Company was good a few years ago but are now more concerned with the bottom line than the welfare of their employee's. Pour pay raises less than the cost of living consistently. Cost of health care raised every year. People are unhappy and don't trust management.

STAY AWAY
Machine Operator (Former Employee), Mayfield, KYFebruary 12, 2014
Cons: every single aspect, but don't take my word for it ask anyone!
The worst management around, mixed with all work and no life balance. If you like working in a sweat shop being yelled at and treated like a preschooler while spending around ten to twelve hours a day seven days a week at work in a dark gloomy disgusting and nasty place Remington is the place for you. The upper mangenment is both blind to any kind of business organization and leadership duties. The middle management hides to avoid being detected as incapable of doing even a mediocre job. Best of all everyone in management hates their employees and is actually is glad to see them leave. No job security, and no hope.

Terrible place to work!
Machinist (Former Employee), Hickory Ky.November 20, 2013
Pros: it's a job
Cons: everything
Worst job I have ever had. OSHA and labor laws broken daily. Favoritism is based on your advancement here. Uneducated biased people running the company. They try to hire people with no education so they can treat them poorly and they will still work there. Most of managment is in a swingers club together. Most of employees are on drugs, while making the guns. They fire people for no reason. Do not know how it is still a functioning company.
